Professional Trail Builders Association Sustainable Trails Conference
March 7 - March 13
PTBA has been grappling with the decision on whether we should gather our community in Bentonville, AR, at the Sustainable Trails Conference in March 2021. We assessed the risks involved, taking notice of the rising COVID-19 cases nationwide, travel restrictions (personal and corporate/agency), potential liability, as well as our survey results.
After much deliberation, the PTBA board voted to postpone the Bentonville conference to 2022 and to explore virtual options for 2021.
PTBA will be refunding ALL 2020 conference and workshop registrations not yet processed. Please reach out with any questions or concerns.
PTBA has begun to research virtual options for 2021. PTBA and our community has so much technical knowledge (and personality), and we think that with the right format and mechanism, we could cultivate an educational, warm, and accessible online environment.
We have been planning a Bentonville Sustainable Trails Conference since 2018. With amazing local partners and a world class trail system, the Bentonville conference will be worth the wait! Dates will be posted when solidified.
